How the New Microsoft Office  Takes the Work Out of Working Together

Join Microsoft Partner Technology Strategist Josh Condie at the Fall 2015 Ingram Micro ONE event and learn all that is new within Office. Plus, get a sneak peek at the coming Office 365 E5 subscription plan.

With the recent launch of Office 2016 and the refresh to Office 365, Microsoft is bringing Office to a wider variety of platforms than ever before and optimizing it for all form factors – PC, laptop, tablet and phone. Come hear Josh Condie speak about the opportunity to position Office across a wide variety of customer types and grow your practice by helping your customers take the work out of working together.

Office 2016 Collaboration Overview

Using Word, PowerPoint and Excel 2016, users can now easily share their documents with friends and colleagues and work with others on the same document simultaneously.

Tired of sending attachments back and forth and manually merging each team member’s edits into the final copy? Using Office 2016, your content stays in one place and no one has to miss out on other people’s edits ever again.

If you’ve already saved your document to OneDrive, OneDrive for Business or SharePoint, all you need to do to invite others is to click the Share button (see Fig. 1) in the upper right of the screen and type in their names or email addresses in the Invite people text box. Next, you can give your collaborators different levels of permission, allowing them to make edits or restrict their access to View-only. If you choose View-only, then only you will be able to make changes to the document. After selecting the Share button, you’re all set and can now see who the document is shared with in the pane. You will receive a notification in the upper right-hand corner as soon as others join the document.

Additionally, you can:

  • Share a link with a group.

    If you want to share your document with a wider audience and don’t feel like typing a long list of email addresses, you can get a sharing link from the Share Simply click the Sharebutton and then click Get a sharing link at the bottom of the pane.
  • Keep track of who is working with you.

    Keep track of the number of co-authors present in the document by viewing the co-author list in the Share In Word 2016, you can see co-authors’ edits being made in real time as they type.
  • Change permissions on the fly.

    To manage the permissions to your document, go to the Share pane and right-click on someone in the list of collaborators. You can remove them from the document completely or change their level of access.
